I don't have GHC past 6.4.2, so I'll have to let you do all that.

The oldest version of the repository was "Text.Regex.Lazy" and was an
unorganized mix of compat/parsec/dfa/devel without any base/posix/pcre/tre.
The loss of history a this stage would not be too terrible.

I should absorb the example files into a large piece of haddock documentation.
I'll start on that and then merge that into your new repository.
